International Doughnut Day Cake: Doughnuts on Doughnuts on a Doughnut

I'm quite pleased to have squeezed the word 'doughnut' into the title of this blog post four HOLE times! My SEO is going to be off the charts. 

I love doughnuts. So much! Which is exactly why I try to do blog posts about them as rarely as possible. With cakes, I can take a couple bites to make sure it's yummy then give the rest away. But with doughnuts, I can't stop myself! I must, and I will, eat every doughnut in sight. 

I do enjoy making my own doughnuts but I wanted to do something easier to celebrate International Doughnut Day. So, I used a few store-bought things to bring this Doughnuts on Doughnuts on a Doughnut Cake together. 


Doughnuts on Doughnuts on a Doughnut Cake - Large Doughnut Base Cake

  • 1 white cake baked in a bundt pan (you can use your favourite basic white cake recipe or just use a box of mix!)
  • 1 cup butter (225g) at room temperature
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink food colouring

1. Using an electric mixer, beat together butter and icing sugar until combined and fluffy
2. Add milk and beat well
3. Add food colouring and beat well
4. When cake is cooled, frost the top of it to look like icing on a doughnut
